She makes me sweat !!!!

Not stitchingranny who doesn't know she won yet but Leslie Sansone with her exercise DVD's. Thanks to Meari I own two of her DVD's. A 3 miles walk and a 5 miles. On monday and tuesday,I did the miles (without the belt because I let my shoulder rest - even though I do feel better) and today, I did the 5 miles walk with Pierre !!! (will you believe 5 miles is actually 8 km !!! ) Jeez, that was hard sometimes but I didn't give up and my knees are okay - for now ... We'll see tomorrow if they complain. I do sweat with those videos and I enjoy doing them. I know I didn't loose any weight as I tried a pant (size 10) I used to wear before (whatever before means ... ) and even though I did manage to zip it up, I do feel like if I breath, the button is going to explode at someone face !!!

I got an award !!! Two wonderful ladies think I'm fabulous. Well, the award is actually for my blog but I'll take it for me because every girl need to take compliments wherever they are !!! By the way, have you noticed my wonderful parisian look on the picture? (yes, exercise did so good on me lately that I decided to wear a very Obama outfit !!! ) Those two great ladies are Meari ( watch out she owes her own snowblower !!! ) and tkdquintmom ( don't mess with her as she really masters Taekwon Do ) Thanks ladies: I have to admit you are quite fabulous yourself

I'm supposed to list 5 of my addictions. Look at me: do I look addicted on that picture? Maybe a little anorexic though ...

1 - stitching
2- drinking (just kidding) photography (ask Steb )
3 - bargains (can't resist)
4 - junk food (bad, bad girl ... )
5 - travelling (not much lately ... )

And the award goes to :
3 - Marita
4 - Andie
It was hard to choose but I count on you ladies to spread the joy of getting an award to some stitchers who didn't get it yet You also know that if I comment on your blog it's because you are as fabulous as me !!!

I'm progressing well on my fuchsias. More than two months on that one and I'm already thinking about my next project. I don't know what I'll pick yet but certainly a smaller one, that's for sure
Detail (looks weird, isn't it? ):

Wow, you actually got one of your kids to walk 8 km with you? Mine would be crying out to people passing by, "Mama's trying to kill us! Help!" LOL.

Thanks for the award! I was given this awhile ago and responded to it, but I've updated that post to include a link to your blog. :D

Good for you! I'm so proud that you are keeping up with the working out :o) The results will happen eventually.

Congrats on your award!

So, so pretty :o) I was wondering what you were going to work on next. LOL!

Sally said...

LOL! I wish I could keep up with an exercise programme. I really need to loose some inches. I tried Yoga last year but it makes me go off balance so I gave it up. Maybe walking at home will be better?

The fuschias are coming along beautifully.

I have been away for a long weekend and had a wonderful time. Then today I have come on the computer to find that I have won two gifts. One from yourself and a coaster from Mylene.
